Our Older Adult Ministry is a lively group of individuals ages 55+ who we call GADABOUTS! And we love to gad-a-bout! Karen Wood keeps this group busy with activities each month. Join us and see what we’re about!

WE ARE READY FOR SPRING.

Contact Karen E. Wood for any questions or details on events.

COVERED DISH LUNCHES
We normally have a potluck the first Thursday of every month at 12:00 PM in the church commons.

November 7th at noon will be our last Gadabouts Potluck for the year, held in the Church Commons. Bring your favorite dish to share, bring a friend, bring your hugs and smiles. I look forward to seeing you there.

December 5th, will be our annual Gadabouts Christmas party at noon in the Commons. Dress up in your finest Christmas sweaters/shirts and enjoy a good meal in the Church commons. There is no cost to you and you do not need to bring any food. You will need to reserve a seat with me so we can get a head count. This is our last get together for 2019.

Lunch dates are subject to change.

DAY TRIPS
Normally the third Thursday of every month we go somewhere. These are day trips.
